Finally! I got around to doing my hair. I really hated how it looked like before with the orangey cooper ombré. Every time I looked at myself in the mirror, I would get upset because of how unhealthy it became after all the failed attempts of trying to do it myself. Now that I’m a mom, day to day tasks are a lot more difficult to accomplish. The last thing I wanted to feel was annoyed at myself for not, at least, looking put together.
Since my budgets been tight, the smartest thing I did was to buy myself a Groupon voucher in May. All month long stores were fighting for attention through promos and discounts for Mother’s Day. I was diligent by reviewing and comparing prices and salons. I wanted to get the most bang for my money and to actually go to a hair salon that I felt cared for my hair or rather I could communicate effectively on what I had in mind.
Before it hit me that I could get a deal on hair services through Groupon, I was literally on the verge of going to a salon that would have done everything for the “very” low starting cost of 150$….
Ladies, that is shopping money, grocery money, and bill money lol
But overall, I loved it! Here are a few pictures to show you all the cut, color and amazing blow out (also the best back view of my baby girl).
Ps. if your thinking of changing your hair to a different color, go to the experts or your favorite salon. You’ll be doing yourself the best service!
Nothings more special to the busiest person in the world then when that person can look rockin’ and banging without having to spend hours in front of a mirror. Every since giving birth to my baby girl, I’ve been lacking sleep, time and sometimes even motivation. Losing sleep is nothing major since college all nighters was as common as finding McDonalds in seemingly every corner. I know how to create the time, but whats really bothersome is the lack of motivation and that stings more then rubbing salt on a wound. Its definitely not depression or any other mental health issue, its just plain’ol laziness and I hope you can relate to this feeling too!
One action thats been helping me fight off my laziness and that shifts my mindset to become more positive to power through the days (since the fourth trimester feels as real as the belly bump during pregnancy) with my newborn. It involves me doing my hair and since I’m breastfeeding constantly, its essential for me to keep my hair up to avoid it from getting on my daughters face.
Here are three of my favorite go to hairstyles that are quick and easy. All you’ll really need is some hair ties and some hair pins if you feel inspired to recreate these styles during the day for a casual look. To help tame any flyaways or uncontrollable strands, water is your best friend if you finding yourself in a “no-hairspray-available-atm-situation” and if your on the go, that situation is wayyyy to common!
